  1. I'm not conceding it, and I don't believe he did. NONE of the witnesses said Sheppard tried to hit Bryant. They clearly identified Bryant as the one yelling angrily. I'm saying the obvious, that Bryant would have been better off to take his chances, if that's what he was so darned panicked about. There were people all over the place. One punch would have been a much better outcome, and I hope Bryant is realizing that now. I doubt that even was Sheppard's intent, though: I think he just wanted Bryant to pay for the damage he did to the bike. Hitting him wouldn't accomplish that.
  2. We should always question. That's our democratic duty.
  3. There are other reasons why one gets beaten up than 'being white'. My point is ... do we know?
  4. Not here. There's a commemoration every year - Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders. Only one vet left now, but he couldn't make it this year. I've seen the history short several times on tv this week. The French couldn't take it. The British couldn't take it. The Canucks took it!
  5. I think there's a clue here: It would appear that forms of political organization in Canada which have been thought of as growing out of the political experience of her population have actually represented an effort to hold in check the kind of political developments which that experience engendered. Responsible government developed in reaction rather than in response to the true democratic spirit of the Canadian people. [26] The validity of this novel interpretation would depend directly on convincing proof that the rebellion had widespread support. Thus, Clark argues that the revol
  6. You were making a joke weren't you? The police are not going to do anything about a bent bike. Couriers have learned to get the money up front. It's a common problem for them, and a common solution to demand the money. Bryant would know that. It never was going slow. Bryant floored it and his tires were squealing all the way across Bloor, with the guy hanging on, shoes making sparks on the pavement. I used to like Bryant, arrogant puppy that he is, but this is truly sick, imo. How could anyone do that to a person? There was help available. You can't kill someone just because he *mig
  7. “I find that the claimant would stand out like a ‘sore thumb’ due to his colour in any part of the country,” tribunal panel chair William Davis said in his decision to grant Huntley refugee status. How does he know that ... "in any part of the country". I think the panel went a little overboard with their comments. Lookit mrcan jumpin all over hisself to welcome immigrants ... as long as they are WHITE (and preferably racist). Gee, I wonder if this dude and the other one were involved in drugs or anything criminal? That could account for them getting harassed. Nobody else wonder about that?
  8. I don't believe they do when they are incarcerated. As is is fine with me. oops ... i'm wrong: Supreme Court says they can. http://www.ctv.ca/servlet/ArticleNews/stor...006&no_ads= 2006: This is the second time federal prisoners have been allowed to vote since the Supreme Court struck down part of the Elections Act in 2002. It had been challenged under the charter of rights by a convicted murderer. The court said voting could teach inmates democratic values and social responsibility. Shane Shoemaker, serving a life sentence for first-degree murder at Edmonton Institution, agrees.
  9. Sorry pliny. my mistake. However, I agree with small c.
  10. It looks like everyone is claiming the first!
  11. Link? Never mind ... http://www.voanews.com/english/archive/200...07f60322f70603e North Dakota Is Home to First U.S. Mosque And sometime around 1929 or 1930, when they realized they would be staying in North Dakota, working as farmers and raising their families here, the Lebanese community decided to build a mosque. I guess you are right about being first, though not the location.
  12. We won't ever know all the facts, and regardless of 'self defence', frankly, I can't comprehend how someone could do that to another person. period. I do believe he could have deescalated the situation without that. He says he's "innocent" of "the more serious charges" which means he'll take a plea bargain, I expect. If convicted of the most serious charge, criminal negligence causing death, racers can face life in prison. But, Taylor said that almost never happens. "To my knowledge, there isn't (a convicted street racer) who has served more than five months in jail," he said. In November
